Historic building, and one of the few to survive Kuching's big fire in the 1880s. The temple is open-air at the top and has a nice view of the river. The sculptures and other artwork is nice but not exceptional relative to other Malaysian temples. Close to the city center, though, and so definitely worth a visit if you're in... More

This strategically located temple in the middle of city centre is a common sight in Kuching. You will pass by this temple every time you ply through the Waterfront. Long established temple, a historic monument of Kuching.
